Sand Rock resident Todd Thomas Stone put a great deal of effort into what turned out to be an unsuccessful attempt to elude Cherokee County Deputies early Monday morning.
About 4:00am, deputies received a call reporting an intruder being found inside a residence however when the suspect was confronted by the homeowner he fled and ran into a nearby wooded area. Officers were still searching for the man, when another intruder call came in, at around 6:00am, at a different home in the same general area.
They quickly arrived on the scene to find the suspect hiding underneath the house, with the homeowner still holding him at gunpoint.
Corporal Gene Knowles and Deputy John Sentell took Stone into custody, charging him with Burglary 2nd Degree and Attempted Burglary 2nd Degree.
He remains in the Cherokee County Detention Center awaiting setting of bond.
